Protection Spells – Powerful protection magick!
Updated: February 12, 2023
As a witch, protection from negative energies, harmful or mischievous spirits, and others who wish to bring harm to us is vitally important to our craft.
We can protect ourselves spiritually, emotionally, and physically through the use of prevention (eg. circle casting) and spellwork aimed at the negative thoughts, feelings and intentions of others.
Protection magick helps witches to maintain clarity about our craft and to make sure that in everything we do we are fully empowered to bring our full intention and power to whatever we are working on. Use these spells to enable yourself to thrive, while protecting that which is sacred in you!
A STRONG PROTECTION SPELL
This is a strong protection spell that you can use to protect someone who is not immediately around you and who is possibly putting themselves into harm’s way either intentionally or unconsciously.
It’s a way to bring safety to them from a distance and can be cast on someone else or yourself to shield them from all sorts of harmful people and energies.
This strong protection spell from Noah Tempestarii is a powerful way to protect yourself from negative energies and people that wish harm on you. In essence, it creates a protective shield that works against these energies to block them from affecting you in a negative way. Try it out!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
- Coarse sea salt
- Five tea lights
- One black taper candle
- One taper candle holder
STEP ONE: CREATE A SALT PENTAGRAM
This is the foundation of the spell. The pentagram will be used to represent the four cardinal directions as well as the spirit and ultimately represents unity.
It’s a powerful symbol to use in your craft because it is complete with the energy of the universe as it contains all elements essential for life.
STEP TWO: CHARGE THE TEA CANDLES
Charge the candles with your unique intention for this spell. You can do this by holding each tea light candle individually, bringing your focus onto your goal for the spell, and then breathing that intention down onto to candle to infuse your will into it.
When you’re finished with each candle, place it on a point of the star to draw in the elements to help you.
STEP THREE: CHARGE THE BLACK CANDLE
Hold the black candle in your hands and begin to infuse it with the powerful intention of protection you have for this spell.
The black candle will serve you as a tool to bring forth the protection power, so now is the time to infuse it with your will and intention of protection from negative people and/or energy. When you’re done, place the black candle in the center of the pentagram.
STEP FOUR: CREATE AN ENERGY DOME
Using your hands and the deep emotion and intention of protection you have inside, begin to create a dome of energy that infuses your candles and salt. This lays the energetic foundation for the spell.
Now, light the candles. The dome you created will expand around you to protect you as large as you want.
STEP FIVE: SPEAK THE INCANTATION
As your dome of protective energy surrounds you, chant the following incantation:
A SIMPLE PROTECTION SPELL
A lot of the time, simple is better when you’re working with protection magick. You may find that you’re in need of a quick and simple protection spell that works reliably to ensure you remain out of harm’s way.
This spell can be worked quickly and with minimal steps, but it’s a way to powerfully infuse your intention for protection in a deeply meaningful way.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
- White sage
- Star anise
- Oil & burner / Cauldron
- Black salt
- Protection stones
- Black candle
- Mortar & pestle
STEP ONE: CAST A CIRCLE
Some start off spellwork by casting a circle. If this is you, begin to cast your circle now. You may like to smudge your space and stones/crystals to clear the energies that are present. Use the black salt to create a circle in your working space and place your stones in each quarter of the salt circle.
STEP TWO: PLACE BURNER/CAULDRON IN CIRCLE
You can use an oil burner with a tea light or an electric oil warmer whichever you prefer or have access to. Place your burner inside the salt circle and begin to warm your oil.
STEP THREE: GRIND YOUR HERBS
Add a few leaves of white sage and dried rosemary to your mortal and pestle and grind into a coarse mix. Attune yourself with the energies of these herbs as you smell and work with them.
STEP FOUR: ADD YOUR HERBS
Add your ground mixture of herbs to the oil and further take in their energies as you raise your own energy and apply deep intention to your spell of protection. Next, add the star anise in a manner that is meaningful to you.
STEP FIVE: AN INCANTATION
A PROTECTION SPELL CHANT
Chants are a really great way to increase your power and desire for spellwork. They give you the opportunity to move past the conscious mind and into the deep well of subconscious intention.
This protection spell chant put to music is beautiful and it’s perfect to add to your spellwork and rituals to bring about greater emotion and power to your protection magick.
Chants are a powerful way to increase energy around a certain outcome. In your protection spells, consider using this wonderful protection chant put to song by Lisa Thiel.
THE PROTECTION CHANT
The arms of the Great Mother Ever is around me The arms of the Great Mother Ever is around me I invoke the protection to by mother’s grace I invoke the protection to by mother’s grace The arms of the Great Mother Ever is around me The arms of the Great Mother Ever is around me I invoke the protection to by mother’s grace I invoke the protection to by mother’s grace
A PROTECTION SPELL FOR SOMEONE ELSE
This spell can be cast when the person you wish to protect is far away from you.
It’s a great way to set up a protective shield around someone who is finding themselves in bad situations either intentionally or unintentionally.
This wonderful protection spell for someone else comes from Magical Witch and is a really powerful way to send protective energies and magick to someone who is in need of it that can’t be reached at the moment. Use this spell to protect someone far away who is in trouble or someone who is traveling.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- One figure candle
- One each red, white and black candles
- Sea salt
- Protection oil & clove oil
STEP ONE: WRITE THE NAME SEVEN TIMES
First, write the name of the person that needs protection on the front of your figure candle. Do this seven times starting from the bottom and writing the name upward. Next, write the petition (what you’re asking for) on the back of the figure candle.
STEP TWO: PLACE SEA SALT IN A CROSS
Place the sea salt in a cross formation on a plate or on your altar, whichever you prefer. If you’d like, chant the petition or say a prayer of your choosing over the salt cross to infuse it with your intention of protection. Finally, place the figure candle in the center of the salt cross.
STEP THREE: PLACE CLOVES AROUND THE CANDLE
Using the cloves, surround your figure by placing them into and onto the salt cross. Use your deep intention of protection and your emotion to invoke protective energies as you chant your petition or prayer once again.
STEP FOUR: COVER IN GARLIC
Use the garlic skin to cover the figure candle completely. Garlic is used commonly in protection magick, and in this case, is used to “shield” those whom you cast this spell for.
STEP FIVE: ADD OILS
Now add ritual oil of your choosing (clove oil is a great choice) to enhance your spell. Any oil that is meaningful for protection spells and rituals will work well.
STEP SIX: ANOINT & LIGHT CANDLES
Lastly, anoint your candles and infuse them with your intention for protection. Place your candles around your figure candle and light them as you focus your intention on the power of the spell.
A PROTECTION SPELL AGAINST NEGATIVE PEOPLE
Negative people cause harm to themselves and others with their toxic energy and intention. This spell aids you in protecting yourself and others around these negative people.
It’s a bottle spell that is really easy to put together but can also be extremely powerful and potent if your will is such. Don’t let negative people harm you or those you care about protecting! Take the power back with this unique spell.
This protection spell working against negative people comes from SantuarioLunar and it’s a really powerful way to ward off negative people and negative experiences wherever you go.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
- Small bottle with cork
- 7 needles
- Handful of Rosemary
- Black candle
STEP ONE: INSERT THE NEEDLES
Next, add the Rosemary to the bottle. As you do this, visualize all the negativity, hatred, and bad vibrations of your situation being banished into the needles and neutralized by the Rosemary.
STEP TWO: ADD THE ROSEMARY
One by one, place all seven needles into the small bottle. As you do this, focus your attention as you say your petition for the spell for each needle. Once all seven needles have been placed into the bottle with seven petitions stated, move on to the next step.
STEP THREE: SEAL THE BOTTLE
Now that all of the ingredients are inserted into the bottle, seal the bottle with the cork. Some choose to seal spell bottles like these with a black banishing candle, so if that is your desire, do it now.
